Savage Worlds Cursed Empire Companion Announced

By on 17 June 2008

Rich Stokes, author of Umläut: Game of Metal and long time Savage Worlds fan, has announced the forthcoming Savage Worlds Cursed Empire Companion! This officially licensed book will present all the rules and system information required to bring the world of Thargos to Savage Worlds. The book will be jointly published by Spartans Unleashed and Lord Of The Pies.

“For those of you who aren’t already familiar with Cursed Empire, it’s a dark fantasy game written and created by Chris Loizou and published by Spartans Unleashed. Currently in it’s second edition, Cursed Empire has it’s own system and a game line consisting of several books as well as floor plans, miniatures and a graphic novel.

There will also be a systemless setting book released at the same time. There is a high likelihood that there will also be Companions for other systems too, although exactly which ones is currently undecided.

Chris and I are both tremendously excited about this project and the chance to bring the world of Thargos to a whole new system.

We’re keen to point out that the new setting book will not replace the existing edition of Cursed Empire in any way. The many loyal customers who own that and are quite happy with the game’s own system will have no need to buy this to get “extra, new stuff”. Chris fully intends to continue supporting the existing game in it’s current form.”

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
